first linocut

My first linocut and I quite like it. Amazing!
To my untrained eye I got about 5 good presses out of about 25 passable. I got a few duds aswell (to be expected, I'm sure)

(Sorry for the badly lit photo)

The 5 good ones, I might sell. If there is any interest?
Most of them have become postcards for the latest nikki-shell swap. Hope the recipients like them.

Just saw these at flickr, and came over to see if you talked about linocutting. I have no idea how to do that, but I just love your result!! They are so so lively and happy looking...

I think you should sell these! They'd make lovely cards too. How big are they?

Oh my, these look stunning! Yay yay yay for the postcard swap as I want one of these on my wall!!!

I like imperfect linocuts too :) I haven't done linocutting in years and never one as intricate as this. Well done!
